  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F or 180 C

  3. In a large bowl, break up the firm tofu with your hands into small to medium size chucks. Add the cauliflower to a bowl. Add seasonings of choice and lightly mix all ingredients together
  4. Heat an oven safe skillet on medium-high heat and add the olive oil (optional) and onions. Stir for a few minutes until the onions are translucent and aromatic
  5. Add the scramble mixture. Saute for a couple of minutes stirring often, and finish in the oven for 3-5 minutes
  6. Remove from the oven and serve with your favorite accompaniments

Tips

  • Try using the scramble to make breakfast tacos with beans and baby spinach for a protein packed variation. Add two handfuls of baby spinach for the added vegetables and one cup of black beans for even more protein. Finish with a handful of fresh coriander or parsley, some nutritional yeast or plant-based cheese to boost indulgence level
